Thyroid Issues

Many people have diagnosed thyroid issues, including hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism and autoimmune thyroid conditions.

However, many others go undiagnosed for months or even years.

When your thyroid becomes underactive, you may feel Tired, Flat, notice the Kilos Creeping Up, feel Cold All The Time (even with 5+ layers on!), Dry Skin which is beginning to look like sand paper, Hair Loss; clumps of hair coming out in the shower, hair all over the floor after you brush it, notice Digestive Changes and other things that make you feel *Blah*.

What Does The Thyroid Actually Do?

It is a small, butterfly-shaped organ that sits in the front part of your neck.

It’s responsible for producing 2 hormones, T3 and T4, which are crucial for:

  • Metabolism
  • Heart rate
  • Temperature regulation
  • Skin, hair, nail growth
  • Ensuring every cell in your body has the energy it needs to function

If these feel-good hormones aren’t produced sufficiently, symptoms occur as a way to let you know something isn’t right.

Often though after testing the thyroid, you’re told ‘it’s fine’.  I’ve heard this so many times.  Often testing doesn’t look at all the thyroid hormones.

With any condition the naturopathic approach ensures that the whole body is taken into account.

A full thyroid panel blood test can be arranged and I consider ALL the possible causes (read the causes HERE).

When it comes to optimal health, it’s not a one size fits all approach, your health history, current symptoms, diet and lifestyle are all taken into account.  As a result, your treatment is individualised just for YOU.

You don’t have to be on medication for the rest of your life.
